Giant cell artheritis: model from epicraneal artery (10-15 cm control/disease pair).
- Translatable model to other vasculitis and vasculo- pathies.
- Disease vs Control comparison studies.
- Drugs, compounds and treatment combinations test.
- Molecular biology studies and biochemical tests: Proliferation, migration, regeneration, matrix cons- triction, microenvironment studies, gene and protein expression, histopathology, immunofluorescence, optical and confocal microscopy, cytometry.
Innovative and non-invasive model.
